WHAT SEPARATES JUVE FROM THE REST
"The winning mentality. When you’re inside this environment, you feel it all the more. In terms of professionalism and organisation, everything is just perfect here.”
FIGHTING ON ALL THREE FRONTS
“We’ve been playing to a very high level in the latter part of 2015. We’ve made up ground on the teams above us, but we can’t stop here, we need to keep picking up more points.
"Our recent run fills us with confidence that we can hit the ground running in the New Year and be challenging for the Scudetto in March.”
CARPI UP NEXT
“I predict a tough match. It’s normal for the opposition to be pumped up whenever they play us. We need to be patient, humble and show just as much hunger and determination to win as they will.”
“It’s quite clearly a difficult draw. They’re a formidable outfit, but we enter the tie confident in our own abilities and I’m sure that they weren’t so pleased to be pitted against us. I’ve no doubt that we’ll be ready for the occasion, even more so than we are right now.”
“I’d like to get as much game time under my belt as possible and become a player who the manager can count on whenever he needs me.
“Being a part of the Azzurri first-team next summer in France would definitely be a dream. It’s not easy because one needs to be playing regular football in order to stand a good chance of being selected.
"Right now I am fully focused on Juventus. I’ve time on my side and I hope I can do well here. Any future call-up to the national squad will be the result of what I achieve here with the Bianconeri.”
